Garcia pleased after friendly victory

Rudi Garcia spoke after his team’s 3-1 victory in a friendly over Indonesia’s U-23 team.

“I liked the attitude of the new ones like (Ashley) Cole and (Salig) Uçan: they entered the pitch with confidence. We anticipated using three line-ups: this match was early after only a few days of training. Iturbe and Keita? We’ll have to wait to see them on the field. Now we have to work hard until we leave for the USA. It’s good to see the fans happy: we give our all for them.”
